Underground Fest Wraps: "Surrender Dorothy" Takes Top Prize

Underground Fest Wraps: "Surrender Dorothy" Takes Top Prize

by Aaron Krach




The New York Underground Film Festival came to a close last night with a
screening of George Ratliff's "Purgatory County," followed by an awards
presentation. Kevin Di Novis', "Surrender Dorothy," was chosen as Best
Feature. "Dorothy," a big winner at this year's Slamdance Film Festival is
surprisingly, still without distribution. Festival Director, Ed Halter,
explained how difficult it was to choose this year's awards. As proof of
how good all the films were he noted that not a single person had, "asked
for their money back," during the festival. Not all the winning filmmakers
were present to pick up their statuettes, so Bambi, a blow-up doll,
accepted the awards on the absent filmmakers behalf.


Best Feature: "Surrender Dorothy," Kevin Di Novis


Best Documentary: "Circus Redickuless," Phillip Glau


Best Short: "Cotton Candy," Roshell Bissett


Best Experimental: "Seven Days Till Sunday," Reynold Reynolds
